Even if it shows some unneccesary stuff. I just like the shape of it...
Thanks for the kind comments guys, sorry there has not been any updates recently, im having mega problem getting my fixings sorted and the large sheet of alli. Really want to get this build up and running so i can get it ready for paint!!!
I perfer the 1st panel. This mod is truly awesome.
Thanks buddy, i have finally found the fixings i want and my mate is cutting my alli as we speak
As i was struggling to get the fixings i wanted i started playing around with the ones i had,
Add some nickel plate and they would be very unique. But i found my fixings now so saves me doing 50 of these boys!!!
A shame... those are the nicest fittings I ever saw!!!!
Bitspower take note!
hehe, maybe i should copyright that design.
Iv had SUCH a nightmare with my fittings, but they are slowly starting to roll in now, i think its ni on £200 on them now
here is a preview of what i have done with what's come in so far! Should be getting the main order early next week
Still no word on the alli which is getting annoying, iv been promised next weekend!!!
It's taking shape nicely Nick,i'm off on holiday next week so look forward to some updates when I get back
i like design idea 1 but 2 is too bad if you do go for 2 you should laser cut in some type of logo of syblem or something to fill it in but keep up the good work getting better and better
Thanks, i hope i have one for you
Still pondering the side panel, but i don't want to much going on on the outside as its what's inside where i want the attention.
Some more fixings arrives (alltho still loads more to come) as well as my alli from my friend Woop Woop
I orederd 6 new ugly fittings as they have a much longer thread to get through my 4mm flooring, the tops from the others go right on
Not able to get much done to night as i have to go see my girlfriend so here is what i managed to do. Its going to make the whole thing look so clean, cant wait to get my hand on it to do more.
More very soon,
This is turning into a fantastic build, keep up the good work.
Well yesterday i made a new backing plate as the one i made previouly was design for the flooring to be at the standerd level (i allso cocked the last one up a bit, but shhh).
Also got a routing table with variable speed router best bargin i have ever had £40 from fleebay, local collection!
More later today
well i look foward to seeing the new improved backplate
Well the wait is over!
Got a good 5 hours work done today! Sorry for the crap photos, I’m going to stop using my phone now, most of them where blurred!
Got 1 of the 3 stripes that will hold the flooring together drilled and tapped.
I took these off the mobo tray as well, aids the clean look and allows me to flush more off with the backing plate, I was suppressed how ridged it was without them.
Then it was on to the new back panel, I did some fancy bending and cutting to fill a hole that was left after I did he last back plate, bit of lead later will seal it all up.
Then on the alli backing plate, I cocked up the last 2 cuts (tired) so ordering a new piece of alli. I see this as a blessing in disguise as I wanted this sheet to be 2mm and my friend could only get me 1.5. It also means I can finish working with this piece, get it all perfect, and then use it as a template when I get the new bit.
Here you can see I cut the bits out the wrong side, on both sides *face palm*
So I chopped it all off so it went it
I also got some new blanking screws, I prefer the hex once to the once a few posts back.
Might be able to work on it some more tom, stay tuned
Back plate is coming along nicely, looking good.
This is shaping up very nicely. Love the floor.
thanks guys, managed to make good progress this weekend.
More work done today.
I drilled the holes top the other ends of the pumps. Im not going to mount the fan as shown below now as it just look out of place, i will be purchasing a 12mm slim line fan to go inside the box and just had a rad grill laserd on the to bottom of the box. Im also changing the box slighty to direct the air flow of this fan down the back of the mobo to keep this cool. I read somewhere there airflow over the back of the mobo increased the max overclock.
Excuse the ugly fittings, all my new once are not the right size so I'm trying to get the replaced. alltho 4 days and still no email back about it!!! ARGGHHH
This is a no no
The tubing looks good.
